Wisconsin bee-keepers should be thinking about their next annual meeting. It will occur next month, and it is none too soon to be making arrangements to attend it. In last week's Wisconsin Farmer, Dr. Vance remarks as follows about the programme, and the membership the association ought to have:

Our Recording Secretary is engaged upon the programme for our next annual meeting, and no doubt he will present one that will draw out the best knowledge and experience. , He will probably have a stenographer to take down the discussions, which will be sure to make entertaining reading for all who are interested in bee-culture.

We intend to exert our utmost to bring out every bee-keeper of the State who possibly can attend the meeting. We expect to start a “racket” that will be heard throughout the State, and shall keep it up until the date of the meeting.

Although we have had very good meetings since our organization seven or eight years ago, we have never had more than 100 present, and our membership has not been what it ought to be and must be, if our members will work for the success of our next convention in February.

Talk to your bee-keeping neighbors about the annual meeting, and stir up their interest, and get them to join the association.

[blocks in formation]

Minnesota bee-keepers should attend the State convention at Owatonna on Jan. 20, 1892. All such will have free entertainment during the convention. This is an inducement seldom provided. Go to "the feast” and be refreshed in body and mind.

It is 31 Years Ago to-day since the AMERICAN BEE JOURNAL was launched on the sea of journalism. For 18 years it has been under the management of the present editor. Its character and reputation are fully established, and the history of the past is the guarantee for the future. Suffice it to say that all our time and energy will be devoted to it, as in the past, and we shall endeavor to continue to make it a welcome visitor to thousands of homes all over the country.

Mrs. L. Harrison will edit the Bee Department of the Orange Judd Farmer. She is, as our readers well know, an able writer, and will make that Department interesting. Mr. Judd is a very able and experienced editor, and the Farmer is one of the best weeklies for the farmer's home.

Now is the time to join the National Bee-Keepers' Union. Send to this office for the necessary Blanks.
